Web of Science Database

Quick Start Information


Clarivate Web of Science logo

The Web of Science platform contains peer-reviewed journal articles, conference papers and more including content from Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, Arts and Humanities Index, Journal Citation Reports, Biological Abstracts, MEDLINE, Conference Proceedings Citation Index, and Inspec.

The default basic search setup will search for documents using keywords for Topics within the Core Collection content that UNLV currently subscribes to.

**This default search setup does not include the content from the Conference Proceedings Citation Index or Inspec.  To gain access those that content, you may select the "All Databases" option from the "Search in:" dropdown menu options, shown in the below screenshot.

Results will be ranked by relevance to your topic keywords.

  • You may add a row and select options to use Boolean operators such as AND, OR, NOT
  • You may use " " for an exact phrase search.
  • You may use * for a multi-character wildcard, or ? for a single-character wildcard.  

You can also learn more about advanced searching in the Web of Science database Medline, and the Inspec subject classification index using the links and information below.
